ISLAMABAD – The capital of Pakistan has been turned into a security bunker with police wardens, Rangers and intelligence agency’s officers standing at almost every crossing as Afghan President Ashraf Ghani arrives to hold talks with Pakistani leadership.
The measures of security could be traced from the notion that Ashraf Ghani’s plane was scheduled to land on Pakistan Air Force’s base Nur Khan.
On his arrival at the Nur Khan airbase where he was received by Advisor to Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs and National Security Sartaj Aziz. Ghani was accompanied by a high-level delegation comprising senior leaders, cabinet ministers, high-ranking officials and business representatives.
Ghani is scheduled to hold a meeting with President Mamnoon Hussain today and another meeting with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif tomorrow.
